to learn more about the APT

The Lake Forest District 67 Association of Parents and Teachers (APT) is excited about the myriad of wonderful school based programs and volunteer opportunities planned for this year throughout our District schools. Our valuable programs and special events enhance the educational experience of all District 67 students and cannot exist without the generosity of our APT member families.

The core mission of the APT is to promote good communication and cooperative working relationships among the community, school and home. We work to enhance the educational experience through school-based programs, organized and implemented by parent volunteers. These programs are predominantly funded by APT dues. District 67 schools include Cherokee, Everett, and Sheridan elementary schools, as well as Deer Path Middle School.


Our membership fee is $35 per family, and includes one print copy of the APT sponsored Student Directory that provides class lists, names, addresses, phone numbers and emails of District 67 students and parents who choose to have their information published. Additional directories can be purchased for $5 each. Membership also includes password-protected access to our online directory.

If you did not purchase an APT membership when you registered your student(s) with the district its not too late! If you are not sure of your membership status please visit the APT Directory website.

New families who were not included in our Student Directory can create their family account and join the APT by visiting the  APT Directory website.

Current District 67 families can purchase memberships and update their family information using the link emailed to them during the summer. Please email us at APTDirectory67@gmail.com if you did not receive the link.

Membership can also be purchased on the District 67 Web Store starting mid-September by using the Online Payments button found on each school's home page.


You are always welcome, but not required, to become more involved at any time. Your directory, weekly school newsletter, and district website all provide information about meetings and volunteer opportunities. All APT meetings are open and are a great place to learn about the volunteer opportunities in your child’s school and across the district. In the end our success depends on the enthusiastic support and involvement of District 67 parents. Please feel free to contact us by email lf67apt@gmail.com should you have any questions.

Please note that APT membership is different from donating to the Spirit of 67 Foundation. The Spirit of 67 Foundation is the fundraising arm for District 67 and works alongside the APT to help fund enrichment opportunities for the children, teachers and parents.
